Lync Server 2013 Front End & Lync Server Mediation Services failing to start. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello Guys. 

    I need some assistance with My Lync Server 2013.My Lync Server suddenly failing to communicate with the users. I checked the services and noticed that the Lync Server front end service was saying starting and never starts. googled for solutions and came across this forum which said there was something wrong with my Lync certificate which was in use.I deleted the certificate which was in use from the (local computer )Trusted root certification Authorities\certificates, moved the other certificates that are not self-signed certificates from the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store to the Intermediate Certification Authorities store, created a new self-signed certificate and assigned it.Now the Lync Server Front End and the Lync Server Mediation Services are both not starting at all.what could the problem be.

  • Hi Rodrick,

    You should look at the Lync eventlog for some more information. I think your certificate is wrong.

    Please use the deployment wizzard from Lync to create a new certificate. You should also use a PKI infrastructure for Lync an no self signed certificates.
